Description

The Epicyclic Gear Units have been developed to enable students to carry out investigations concerning epicyclic gearing in simple and more advanced forms.

A version of this apparatus is the Coupled Epicyclic Unit Ref SD-4.17 which uses two standard speed unit or a forward and reverse unit.

Recently introduced, the Three Speed Epicyclic Gearbox Ref SD-4.18 provides two forward speeds and reverse.

A bracket fitted with a spring balance which enables the student to measure the holding torque on each annulus can be supplied as an optional extra (Ref SD-4.18a).

Bearings are used extensively throughout these units to reduce frictional losses to a minimum.

All epicyclic units can be wall mounted or fitted to the Universal Bench Mounting Frame (Ref SD-1.10).
